7th Grade Language Arts - Rm 305

Name and Grade

Mr. Charles Ehrhard • 7th Grade Language Arts

Where are you From?

I was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois a little over a mile away from Goudy.  

If you could travel to anywhere in the world, where would it be?

I would love to travel to Colombia. My wife and her family are from there, and I hear it is absolutely beautiful.  

What is one book that everyone must read?

"Of Beetles and Angels" by Mawi Asegdom. It is an inspirational book that shows how anything is possible if you have a growth mindset. It also makes you think about the positive impact you can have on the people you interact with.  

Who was your favorite teacher growing up?

My favorite teacher was Mr. Petersen, my high school literature teacher. He taught us a lot about analyzing and appreciating all kinds of literature and I always looked forward to his class. He made learning fun and always made us laugh.  

What do you like most about Goudy?

I love the variety of cultures represented by our students and family-like atmosphere among the staff. I truly feel that the staff and students at Goudy are my family. There is no other school that has the dedication, collaboration, support and warmth that exists among the staff and students at Goudy.
